The Wexford Carol

The Wexford Carol is a traditional religious Irish Christmas carol originating from County Wexford, with words that may date back as early as the 12th century. The subject is that of the nativity of Jesus Christ.

The origin of the tune is also somewhat unclear; it may be as early as the 16th century or as recent as the 19th.

My version is instrumental and tries to get a Celtic undertone. If this carol is new to you — as it was to me this year — I encourage you to explore other versions. Allison Krause has a nice one, and there is also one by Celtic woman.

Run For Your Life

“Run For Your Life” is the final track on the Beatles’ landmark album, Rubber Soul. My instrumental arrangement follows the original in form and feel.
